Honorable Gideon Aremu, a member of the Oyo House of Assembly, has been assassinated at his Alakia residence in Ibadan. This development has been confirmed by the state government. Speaking on the development, Governor Abiola Ajimobi described the assassination as tragic and condemnable.
In a statement gotten by IBPulse, it was revealed that the governor ‘immediately got into contact with heads of all relevant security agencies including the police, state security services and the army to ensure that any and every one connected with the dastardly act is promptly apprehended and made to face the full weight of the judicial consequences of such sins against humanity’.
The security chiefs have consequently thrown their dragnets wide open to immediately investigate, arrest and prosecute all the antisocial elements who connived to snuff out the promising life of such a compatriot and public officer.
While commiserating with the wife, children and family of the diseased Honorable Gideon Aremu who was a ranking member of the Oyo State House of Assembly, the Governor assured them and all the people of Orelope State Constituency that justice will not only be seen to be done but will be done swiftly and thoroughly to ensure the repose of the soul of the good and committed patriot.
